It is said that art imitates life. Following real life examples, over the years our Bollywood films have been replete with hilarious examples where mothers of top actresses accompany their daughters to film sets and tell sundry spot boys 'baby ke liye juice lao'. However, this time the situation is neither that simple nor lighthearted.
Ask Karan Johar who is not having an easy time shooting for the Shahrukh Khan-Kajol starrer My Name Is Khan in Los Angeles. Kajol who agreed to do the film after a lot of deliberation is now asking for a far more prominent role in the film. This comes as a surprise considering the deep friendship between Kajol and Karan Johar. And evidently it is Kajol's mother Tanuja, who is accompanying her, who is to be blamed. Our sources say that Kajol demanded that Karan give her more punchy dialogues only on her mother's insistence.
An insider said, ''Kajol has realized that she does not have too much to do in the film since the film completely revolves around Shahrukh Khan. Sensing Kajol's turmoil, Tanuja asked Kajol to convince Karan to give her dialogue which will leave a more lasting impression.'' After Kajol had a talk with Karan, we hear that he had no choice but to bow down to the mother-daughter diktat.
